Hi All,

Somebody asked about the use of Question marks and I found the guide below.

When to use a question mark


If you are asking a direct question and waiting for an answer

Do you want to go with me to the store?

Will dinner be served tonight?

When can I see you again?

Who is your new teacher?

Where is the party tonight?

What does that mean?

Why are you bringing a sweater?

How do I do this math problem?

For rhetorical questions

Are you kidding me?

Who cares?

How should I know?

What’s the use?

To show doubt or uncertainty

Queen Elizabeth I (1523–?) is my favorite queen.

John’s father is named Woodrow (?).

Lord Worthington (and his wife?) lived in the house down the road.

When punctuating something within quotation marks

Have you read “The Tell-Tale Heart”? (The question mark isn’t part of the quotation, so it goes outside the quotes.)

My favorite Christmas song is “Do You Hear What I Hear?” (The quotation is a question, so the question mark goes inside.)

I hope this is useful.

Your Mysterious Admin Person
